Extended Warranty

Friend of mine is looking for companies that provide extended warranties for his motor home. He knows of Good Sam. What are some of the others? Good or bad experience?

Thanks

Our Greyhawk came with Warranty Forever RV coverage through our dealer. Did not need to purchase a separate one.

No extended warranty here as 2 years is sufficient.

I have one and I just used it. Repair was 1400. When we bought our RV the warranty was on sale. Paid $1500. And i have 7 years total of warraty. One more repair and will have paid for it self. The company is FCPP. On our last trailer we bought it and it cover when the converter blew, when the furnace went. One of the side wall had to be repaired. One of the bunk end almost broke off. the way I look at it it cost me about $20 a month over 7 years for piece of mind. I have never had a repair turned down and not get authorized.

Until an extended warranty covers leaks and water damage I am not not interested. Maybe if I had a power train on my RV, but with a towable I can afford to take the risk.

Tell him to save his money. 3rd party extended warranty's are not worth the paper they are written on. Take the money he would spend on the warranty and put it in the bank to cover unexpected costs down the road.. he will be money ahead.

We purchased the Route66 extended warranty through our dealer when we bought new in 2011. Cost was around $2000 if I remember correctly. First two years were covered under Jayco warranty and our MH seemed to be in the shop more than out. Last couple of years, more issues and they have been covered by the extended warranty. Last year was the awning motor, slide out motor and controller and some smaller issues. All covered and paid for by extended warranty. The slide out invoice alone was $1600. MH back in the shop today and the same slide out will not budge. Extended warranty has paid for itself already and we still have a couple more years of coverage.

It is a personal decision and how much risk you are willing to take.

We also have a Route66 extended warranty purchased through our dealer.
Have not had a need to use it yet since our unit is still under the Jayco 2 year warranty.
Purchased it for piece of mind and because of the amount of electrical components on the unit.

Agree with donellen30 - "It is a personal decision"

Good luck.
